High-speed rail: A game-changer but how much will tickets cost?
The planned high-speed rail from Jurong East in Singapore to the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur is expected to shorten
travel time to as little as 90 minutes. There will be seven stops in Malaysia and the 340km line is estimated to cost RM40
billion (S$14.8 billion) to build. The ambitious project is likely to impact the way Singaporeans and Malaysians live, play
and do business. Consumer correspondent Jessica Lim and reporter Jasmine Osada speak to experts for some ideas.
The Singapore terminus for the planned high-speed rail link will be located in the Jurong East area. Industry players estimate that commuters could pay between $80 and $90 a trip. -- ST FILE PHOTO
